The co-winner of the Retro Pro Frank'enMotor Art Contest (Bob Suzuki) appears to be posing for his portrait by the monster he created.
Today's first D3 race will be for "Coupes" (anglewinders and inlines).
Paul Sterrett's entry is the first through tech inspection.
Craig Correia's Coupe with "dykem" purple headlights!
Craig you forgot the machinist "scribe" lines! An inline to challenge the anglewinders.
Another inline to chase the anglewinders?
